According to the Associate PressPepsi Beverages Co. will pay $3.1 million to settle federal charges of race discrimination for using criminal background checks to screen out job applicants â even if they weren't convicted of a crime.

Probably not unexpected, reinforcing the idea that screening should be job related; of course, from a company perspective, it certainly has downsides in terms of possible negligent hiring.
